I don't disagree they're nearly junk but I just need them for winter, and even with less tread would be better in the snow that my current tires. I made them swap out a really really bad tire I had one, and the charged me $16 for it, 5 to mount, 3 valve stem and 8 to balance. I didn't tell them to balance the tire nor to put a valve stem in; nor did they ask.

I guess I can get around the valve stem, whatever can't hurt, but the 8 bucks for ballancing just was enough; it's not the cost itself, it's the principal. That, and it took over 2 hours for them to figure that out. When I got there, there was only one other car in the garage. Bull pucking shoot it takes 2 hours for that kinda work

Am I then only one that has issues (not the 1st time something like this has happened, but i didn't have much of a choice); or the only dumb enough to go to walmart for tire services?

Oh, end rant
I am finding it really hard to agree with anything here.

This makes me already miss Texas' yearly safety inspections.

Sticks and stones may break my bones but hollow points expand on impact.
